Title: Aspect in Grammatical Variation
Edited By: JamesA.Walker
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SILV%206
Series Title: Studies in Language Variation 6
Description:

The articles in this edited volume represent a range of approaches to
studying the role of verbal aspect in grammatical variation. Issues
addressed include: defining the variable context; operationalizing
aspectual distinctions as factors conditioning linguistic variation; and
the appropriate number of aspectual distinctions and levels. Apart from
bringing to light various methodological and analytical issues, this volume
gathers together a unique collection of original research, based on spoken-
and written-language corpora, of an array of languages and linguistic
varieties: African American Vernacular English, Caribbean English and
English-based creole, Indian English, Newfoundland English, Canadian
French, Brazilian Portuguese, Ecuadorian Spanish, Mexican Spanish, and
Peninsular Spanish. This volume should not only benefit research on
grammatical variation but also be of interest more generally to the study
of verbal aspect.
